IDK for sure, but If you fall into the "petite" category You might have a little trouble finding a men's board in a short enough range for your weight, but if you do find one that fits, Gender has nothing to do with how the board rides!
The boards performance/fit is based on riders weight! Most women's boards seem to be offered in much shorter lengths than men's boards, probably because there aren't a whole lot of 6'2" - 230 lb women riders? Maybe in Russia?
I'm pretty sure that one of our EU female members, neni rides a mens board or two! She can probably give you a more knowledgeable, in depth opinion!
(....and she definitely does not
fall into that 6'+ 200+lb weight range!)
